When you need the services of an HVAC repair company, you usually need them right away, meaning that, if your air conditioner isn’t working on a 90-degree day, you probably won’t be as thorough in checking out the credentials of an HVAC company as you would if you were planning to have a new air conditioning system installed while your old system was still working. Nevertheless, while solving your predicament as quickly as possible is the goal, there are few simple tips that you should follow as you flip through the heating and air conditioning service section of your local Yellow Pages.
The first tip is to always make sure that an HVAC repair company is licensed, bonded and insured, which shows that they’ve passed a certification test that shows their expertise in HVAC work and that they have the insurance coverage to pay damages if something happens to go wrong during the project. The second tip is to make sure that an HVAC company has experience doing projects in older homes if your home is more than 50 years old. Because older homes often have newer air conditioning systems retrofitted to older HVAC elements, it’s best to get a technician who has experience dealing with this situation. A third tip for choosing the right HVAC company is to ask if its technicians are NATE certified, which shows that they have training in the most up to date air conditioning solutions.
Because of the importance of your air conditioning system to your daily life, it’s important to take some simple measures to ensure that a heating and cooling company is likely to perform quality work, as well as to ensure that, if any damage to your property or person occurs as a result of an HVAC project, you won’t be left to pay the bill.
